    I’ve cancelled my 9pm meeting as I’ve started on the wine.

    My view is Ralph shouldn’t have replaced Oriol with Moussa. We left ourselves wide open to that.

    Tactics this half haven’t been great from Ralph. I get he is ****ed with no KWP, and Bedders is a nightmare at RB.

    Utterly pathetic 2nd half here, one of out worst.

    Seriously, whilst we are 8 points clear of Fulham, if they manage a couple of wins whilst we have 3 very hard away game, I can see us right back in the ****.

    I’m truly ****ed off tonight, more than the Utd game.

    Such a simplistic view. Understandable to pour out the disappointment but form is a thing and we are in a really poor run of form begun by an awful run of injuries, compounded by **** ref decisions and now firmly established. Every manager faces this at some point and they either manage their way out of it or they're done for. We have had about 2 games with a decent squad to pick from, give the guys - all of them a chance to play themselves back into form. It may take another few games.

    How do we stop the rot?
    • Team doesn’t seem to have any fight
    • short on options to make any changes in the squad
    • Is Prowsey doing a bad job of captaining/leading the players on the field?
    • Is Ralph not the right manager?
    • Do we just need some new owners who would inject some new cash/optimism?

    I'm starting to worry that Gao will interfere and get rid of Ralph. :cry:

    Agreed - all strikers struggling for confidence and taking one touch too many

    Such a shame considering how high our confidence was earlier in the season. We are so brittle, like a Dime bar faced with a little hammer.

    Not sure Ralph can be blamed . What backing has he had from our owner ( Financial ) .

    oh well .... F1 season starts soon :)

    I think our problem Chilcs is we keep letting in more goals than we are scoring.

    I must admit, maybe I’m being harsh in the heat of the moment, but I thought Alex was a little off with the 1st and the 3rd, but also kept us in it at other times.

    I dont think we will go down this season but the fact we are even talking about it after our start is awful.

    What I really am worried about is the fact we are broke and will likely spend bugger all in the summer. We really need additional investment, hope Gao sells asap to someone willing to invest - otherwise we are Championship bound

    Romeu had to go off. He was injured

    Well said. KWP and Diallo are sorely missed, Theo less so but at least he’d be another option when Adams and Redmond are so out of form. As Has others have said, the root cause of our problems seems to be the heads dropping when we have a bit of bad luck like the disallowed goal. That has to change, and fast.

    All show and no go. Trying to pass teams to death doesn't get the points. That said, if Tella scored is chance early doors it's a different game.

    I fear he may walk, he has done all he can with the deck he was dealt, it has too many cards missing.

    But we're consistently falling on the wrong side of those margins, and when you consistently do something wrong there's someone to blame. This is an absolutely appalling run, can anyone honestly look at that fixture list and think, yep- we'll get something there?

    Every single game we conceed we throw the towel in. No fight, no heart no desire. We spend so much time pissing about passing it amongst the back four only to give it away in the final third. The defenders can't defend and **** knows why RH insists on playing Redmond.

    We're going to do exactly what Bournemouth did last season and Ralph isn't competent enough to change this around.

    I don’t think any supporters want Ralph gone?

    He left out Ings, but we’re playing with only 1 fullback

    Diallio is ahead of schedule, if Romeu is out for a bit , hopefully Diallo will be available.
